The first part of the Tiger and Bear project consisted of performative photographs. Performative in the sense that performances were staged primarily for the sake of the documentation, that being photographic finished products. These were executed by approaching random members of the public, exclusively Korean, and asking them to photograph us. It is worth noting that due to the language barrier this was done entirely through body language. We would then don the Tiger and Bear heads and perform a predetermined action, usually specific to the situation or location. This sometimes proved difficult due to the photographer’s persistent gestures for us to smile at the camera. This project had one exception to the method, that being the professional portrait (see above), where we entered the shop wearing the heads and acted in character throughout the whole ordeal. This image was highly manipulated by the photographer through the use of photographic enhancement software, where blemishes were airbrushed and eyes enlarged, so were the heads made more symmetrical and smoother.
